? what makes you angriest at john mccain, the republicans, what's being said about your husband that you want to shout from the mountaintops is not true? >> it was one of the most moving moments in my life, to come across that bridge with this group of kids i've never met before, but we were all together. and that's the sense you get here, we're at the parade route where the president's going to review the parade. this sense of family, of the country coming together, that's what people are looking for, i think. >> al, i'd love to tell you that i have no idea what you're talking about, that everybody here kept their emotions thoroughly in check during the ceremony, but i'd be lying to you, my friend. i'm hoping to find you in a reflective mood on a cloudy day. we're the first to speak to you coming off your summer vacation. how does it recharge you, what do you think about, what do you see, what do you read about? how are you thinking about your job these days? ♪ >> all right. there you have i, our four finalists. now, ladies and gentlemen, you're going to vote with everything at your d

disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama, and that is that the -- we're going to fundamentally change the focus of the economic policy. we're going to focus on the middle class, because it's -- when the middle class is growing, the economy grows and everybody does well, not just focus on the wealthy and corporate america. >> thank you, senator. governor palin? >> thank you, gwen. and i thank the commission, also. i appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with americans. you know, i think a good barometer here, as we try to figure out has this been a good time or a bad time in america's economy, is go to a kid's soccer game on saturday, and turn to any parent there on the sideline and ask them, "how are you feeling about the economy?" and i'll bet you, you're going to hear some fear in that parent's voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. the barometer there, i think, is going to be resounding that our economy is hurting and the federal government has not provided the sound oversight that
mccain, republican. [applause] served in our military, house, senate and of course was the republican nominee for president. you have already met governor schwarzenegger. i told governor schwarzenegger it's significantly harder. our former california governor and convener here at our wonderful institute. former governor and house member and member of the cabinet, tom ridge and republican of pennsylvania also -- and forme house member and governor of the house, governor of minnesota. -- of new mexico. and i figured i would let them all sit down first then figure out which one was my chair. >> i come to -- that's be why senator mccain, you're the brave man here. you worked with senator crist and the majority leader while you all held those jobs. but it doesn't happen very often before people take office. and we have wonderful examples from or former presidents. i mean bill chriss campaigned against you, but he didn't defeat you. president carter defeated >> and now he works with and with george w bush as well. and the time i was interviewing president bush was when i was doing a piece o
for governor in indiana and you know it's bad when governor haley barbour calls and then senator john mccain. he single handedly exposed the issue in the are republican party on the issue of abortion. last night he broke with the governor saying he would not support mourdock unless he offers an apology for the rape comment. but by this morning it was all forgotten. senator mccain emerged to reverse himself, saying that he was, quote, glad that mr. mourdock apologized and he hopes the people of indiana will elect mr. mourdock to the u.s. senate. a year ago he was asked about a personhood bill on mike huckabee's show. here's what he said. >> would you have supported the constitutional amendment that life is established at conception? >> absolutely. >> absolutely. as for mr. mourdock, he believes that a woman must carry a rapist's baby because life is life, period. so does paul ryan. >> i've always adopted the idea that the method of conception doesn't change the definition of life. >> the method of conception. that's what we call rape. no wonder mitt romney can't reject mourdock. when it comes
, and decided to make his endorsement in the presidential race between barack obama and john mccain that year, colin powell choosing obama for his endorsement was pretty much the last thing in the world the mccain campaign needed to hear. at that point, they were already becoming a really evident long shot. the race was starting to increasingly look like it wasn't even going to be close. and the colin powell endorsement just took the wind out of the mccain campaign's sails. john mccain responded to the endorsement that same day by going on fox news and sighing that, well, it wasn't all that much of a surprise. he at least, though, was able to say even if he did not have colin powell's endorsement, he did have endorsements from some other former republican secretaries of state. so at least he had those names to offer for counterbalance. the romney campaign's counterbalance tonight to them losing the colin powell endorsement this year is a whole different kind of counterbalance. >> you want to call me crazy, go to hell. call me crazy all you want. >> this morning, on cbs, republican former secr
of the military assault. frank townsend will join us shortly. bob b enair and john mccain wil join us as well. but i want to start with, intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly. >> >> the fbi is expected to take the lead on this investigation. >> so, it is not clear. fbi will take the lead on interviews and cia. others will be there? >> that is what was expected. it's not clear that the cia will take the lead and other intelligence will be there? >> that's what we understand you understand what this looks like with law enforcement. but we are told that right now the fbi is told to take the lead. they would be able to uphold in court but that the intelligence agency will be there as well. they want to know how many other people they can lik nk to the attack in benghazi. >> so, his name is ali alhazri. we know that he was posting details of the attack as it was happening on his social media websites. >> as it was happening? >> as it was happening. spectacular detail. when you do something like that it makes it easier for people to track you down and find you. we know that he went from libya an
was a lawyer for john mccain which i thought was a very important job. nothing like being a lawyer for stephen colbert. maybe one day i can say i work for comedy central, too. i want to give you a brief overview. this is a graphic we ran in "time" magazine at the end of july, we are trying our best to project with the money would come from and what the differences would be in terms of the various sides. the point we're trying to make, one that there is a real difference in political money strategy that they are employing the cycle. the obama campaign is heavily reliant on small dollars, regu under $2,500 from individuals. the campaign has total control over and can spend as they want. th usa whie we sangaybe millearlier. since then, the super pak sets and in a huge wave is sumner. when romney wins, he does not have the money he needs to compete with obama. he relied heavily on super pacs to do is advertising. this is not technically coordinated advertising. trevor can get into the realities there. it had some obvious positive affect in holding parity with the president as he issued a blisterin
that big and we feel we have momentum and the next day john mccain announces sarah palin as vice presidents. you could just feel something all of a sudden. people can say what about how ready she was, but in that moment sarah palin made a pretty grand entrance onto the national stage. she blew through. i often talk about that as hurricane sarah. we had the republican convention. there were two hurricane events in my mind. they had to cancel the first day of their convention and then there was hurricane sarah. the head wind was still for about 18 days. john mccain came out of his convention in september with a three-point lead. that stretched to about six or eight points in mid september. the alarm bell sounded and people were saying the same thing they had said a year ago. we started to hear about the strategy, we were not strong enough, we had not hit hard enough at mccain. people that are decided we were going to lose, so we were starting to feel all this pressure. then september 15 comes and that's when wall street collapsed and john mccain was on the look -- hook for six words -- "the f
received a unanimous senate confirmation with the full support of senders mccain and kyl. this is gary disingenuous. -- this is very disingenuous. they have been cleared previously. congressman flake felt that my numbers were going up so he had to do something to discredit me. i would urge the public to take a look at my record in the press and elsewhere to find out who this lady really is. not somebody you can trust because she has been discredited repeatedly. >> i have been in congress for 12 years and i have a record that you can look at. dr. carmona has not served in an elected position. when you are looking at somebody to look at how they would perform in the senate, you have to have the right temperament to do so. this is certainly relevant. the statement that this was somehow cleared up by the government affairs committee, it was not. if somebody lies to congress, testifying before congress, like roger clemens on the steroid issue, congress will go after them. they did not do that with her. she gave the testimony and you saw it there. this notion that you can somehow discredit h
's what the president has to do. >> thank you for being here. >>> senator john mccain debating barack obama. he was watching closely. senator mccain joins me ahead. the big "360" interview. we'll talk about syria as well. n your own butter too? what? this is going to give you a head start on your dinner. that seems easier sure does who are you?

. it jumped to senator john mccain first. what do you expect out of this and romney tonight? what do you expect out of obama? mccain said romney should make it clear he is not interested in fighting every fight and he has a policy of strength, peace through strength. as far as the president's concerned, let me just finish, as far as the president is concerned he said he thinks that president obama has been less than transparent with the american people. i bumped in to senator graham. he was vehement how important the debate was defining the foreign policiful he feels that obama's group is trying to redesign romney in a way he doesn't need to be defined on his own. a lot on the foreign policy debatech >> bob: i have two questions. how many pictures did you have taken down there? did you run in to any democrats by chance? >> eric: i did. glad you asked. so far i have been tweeting pictures. candy crowley -- >> dana: how did that go? >> eric: i did. i bumped in to generaler the sak frish if obama campaign. what do you think president obama will say to define his person sol? she said he's al
, ed. this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and looked like he doesn't understand what was at stake. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. he was talking about cleaning up a football field of rubbiage. and i think it's civilly when you can't play politics. right now, we're having a debate over the future of our society. and things like this disaster relief are really quite pertinent. so it's not that he can't campaign, but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema. go out and there and defend your me first, dif involve to the states attitude. but he's scared and e he won't do it. >> this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politicians. what we're really making of all of this, here's chris christie in a news conference before the storm yesterday. >> i should call him directly at the white house and he was going to be there and i should just not worry about dealing with anybody else, to ca
. i mean this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and really looked like he didn't understand what was at stake or what was going on. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. i mean he was talking about cleaning up -- one time he had to clean up a football field of rubbish and comparing that to disaster relief and i'm not somebody -- i think it's kind of silly when we say we can't play politics at this moment. there's always politics and right now we're having an election. we're having a debate over the future of our society and things like disaster relief are really quite pertinent, so it's not that he can't to me it's not that he can't campaign but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema and go out and defend your me first, devolve to the states attitude. it's a good time to have a debate about it but he's scared so he won't do it. >> you know, this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politic
is your take away? >> a couple of things. you get a sense of how relentlessly message to john mccain is. he used the term spread the wealth of around three times. another thing that strikes me is how obama is making eye contact with became the entire time he is talking. he looks right at them. there was a lot of discussion from the earlier debates in 2008 that mccain was having a hard time making eye contact. it came off as rude. another thing that jumps out on me is the contrast of the youthful obama and a much more senior mccain. obama actually was more the adult in my opinion in that relationship in that he was very calm and cool under fire. mccain, although that last debate was his best, he had moments where he was a little erratic and some of those earlier debates. >> you said, both president obama and governor romney share a sense of trepidation about going mano-a-mano on live television. how may it went up boxing them in? >> neither one of them has and enjoyment of debating. that is a weird word to use. i think the ones who are really good at it and the ones who really come acros
will say. if four americans get killed it's not optimal we are going to fix it. >> senator mccain said the president of the united states needs to offer solutions to the problem of americans being murdered abroad instead of saying broadly he will clean up the mess. >>> on the comedy show there are screw ups then you fix them. he didn't talk about responsibility. the responsibility is his. >> a libyan is one of a handful of men now suspected of commanding the deadly raid on benghazi. we don't know if he is a ringleader but we are told he is on the short list. >>> peter doocy live in washington, thank you. >>> when exactly the president and his administration knew about the attack. al potential bombshell on his show last night. >> new information may come today to prove the state department knew within two hours this was a terror attack. >> there are still unanswered questions including why did the u.n. ambassador and tell the american people something that turns out not to be true. who told her to say that? i know what press is like for a sunday show. someone specifically said to say th
're probably most likely to think of this. >> you know, john mccain and i, we're a couple of mavericks. and gosh darn it, we're going to take that maverick energy right to washington. and we're going to use it to fix this financial crisis. >> reporter: the real al gore was so stiff in his first debate -- >> i will put medicare and social security in a lockbox. >> reporter: -- his staff made him watch this. >> one of the keys to the lockbox would be kept by the president. >> reporter: the real john mccain wandered around the stage when he debated obama. and so did "snl's" mccain. the parodies aren't just funny. they can matter. >> as many people will talk about the "snl" skit on monday as talk about the actual presidential debate. and that's what makes it so powerful. >> reporter: after all, how can the real debate compete with something like this? >> i know the white house. i know the door out to the rose garden doesn't lock unless you pull it. i know the toilet in the lincoln bedroom will run all night unless you jiggle that handle. >> reporter: jonathan karl, abc news, washington. >>
go away. he could certainly learn a thing, mitt romney could, about being courageous from john mccain. remember in 2008 when john mccain stood up to the people who thought president obama administration was a muslim. >> no, man. he is not. thank you. thank you. [ applause ] >> jennifer: john mccain earned a lot of respect for standing up and being honest. mitt romney remains silent. silence in the face of these kind of comments is unacceptable. there's a saying that goes not to speak is to speak. not to act is to act. joining me from washington to discuss the republican's race to the bottom is democratic strategist and syndicated columnist karl frisch, and coming to us from boston is charlie pierce, contributing editor of "esquire" magazine. both of you gentlemen welcome back inside "the war room." >> good evening, governor. >> hello, governor. how are you? >> jennifer: i am great. charlie let me start with you. how it is that mitt romney can continue to affiliation himself with people who make inane comments like those. >> first of all the jesuate fathers thought me
for the weekend were canceled. john mccain was campaigning in formmonwealth of virginia mitt romney. was there and joins us from the newsroom. senator mccain was comparing the campaign to his own ago?years right.lutely first, the cancellations. a big rally also scheduled for president with bill clinton monday in prince william county air. in the governor mcdonnell says worst- scenario, he can postpone day, although that is not likely. another twist in an already unpredictable race. slip on theional understandable, but the of the path sat down of controlled tv interviews. t is now the biggest concern. while joe biden stumped in wisconsin and continue to mock make romney -- out there is a lot of qualified women. >> he perhaps optimistically the movie iowa to soundtrack for air force one and ,ave an economic speech critical of the sluggish page out ofking a playbook. >> we need real change, big change. come.ime has sides concede at this wate there are very fe forcided, they are looking every one of them. about policy. is personal. better than john mccain. in our interview today, he was
allowed john mccain, john mccain allowed him to laugh at you. ( laughter ) to laugh at you for using a cartoonish, child-like figure to invigorate your campaign. that's mccain who was saying that. ( applause ) that's got to hurt. but haters gonna hate, right? hater's gonna hate, the media, the republicans. but at least you're still fighting the good fight, children's literacy. >> obama for america says it's reviewing a request from the sesame workshop to stop airing the ad. >> jon: oh! et tu, big bird? i have-- i may have mixed languages on that. all right, so lesson learned. maybe this will be a wake-up call to the president. to recapture some of that vigor and enthusiasm of '08, when a passionate candidate and committed base of supporters, artists. yesterday the commander in chief headed to ohio state university to speak to the youth once again with will i am in. perhaps this would be the moment to utline the grand vision in the niewrt. >> it may sound silly, and you may laugh, but this is the theme song from my childhood and i want to play is ♪ sunny day sweeping the clouds awa
susteren, senator john mccain expressed his deep and in no way opportunistic disappointment. >> even from someone like the president, who has never known what these kinds of tragedies are about and the service and sacrifice that people make, it is still just, you know, i can't even get angry. it's just so inappropriate. and i'm sure that the families of those brave americans are not amused. >> jon: i can tell how not angry you are. [laughter] strong and definitive condemnation from mccain of an interview the senator could not possibly have seen as it didn't air until one hour later. and i'm pretty sure mccain stopped watching this show... [laughter] [whispering] so to see the senator commit to something without first properly vetting it was really, well, yeah, okay. i guess that was... [cheering and applause] i think jokes like that are probably why he stopped watching. anyway, i figure give conservatives a night to sleep on it. see the interview in context. perhaps the reaction will be less knee-jerk. >> "not optimal"? some people aren't happy about that. >> that is an embarrassing word
victory on the order of obama's defeat of mccain, a near land slide. >> greta: tomorrow morning in morning, the jobs report comes out, on the serious side, so many americans are without work. that's enormously distressing. there is a political part of that. if that number stays the same as the national average or gets worse, is that going to have any appreciable effect, do you think, on the campaign for the president? >> well, i think tell have the same deflatingesque as the jobs report after the democratic convention last time did. last month, it came out the day after obama's speech. i think it took some wind out of his sails. but i think there were very specific things things that romy accomplished that is important to focus on. number 1, obama agreed there was no difference between them on social security. and obama agreed that neither of their medicare plans would hurt existing elderly or anyone about to retire. they disagreed on the $716 million that obama caught current retiree, but the medi-scare and the social security scare tactic can't be used because obama stipulated that that
in the middle of fox's election night coverage was on tv gaming out john mccain's chances of pulling out a win that night. he said during their election coverage, quote, if senator mccain loses ohio he goes from 286 electoral votes, which the republicans carried in '04, down to 266 and that puts him below the 270 needed to win the white house. so he would not only need to sweep the rest of these states which were won by the republicans in '04, he would also need to pick up something as well. at that exact moment as carl was saying on fox news as part of their coverage that john mccain basically had to win ohio or else, while carl rove was saying that live on fox, fox got word that the state of ohio had not, in fact, been won by john mccain. it was won by barack obama. mr. rove was right that night. that was game over for john mccain. by winning the great state of ohio, barack obama won the presidency. mr. obama closed off john mccain's path to the white house by taking that one giantly important swing state, and it was all over. in presidential politics ohio is a must-win. for republicans, win
